Oh to be there

(Mary Winslow)

Without Jesus life would be an aching void,
earth a wilderness of woe and sorrow! He
can transform this wilderness into a little
heaven, making it radiant with His presence!
What must heaven itself be!


I shall soon exchange earth for heaven, and ​​Oh to be there
finally close my eyes, when I shall re-open
them in glory. Oh, to be there! Oh, to see
Jesus face to face! To behold Him whom my
soul loves, and be with Him forever! But a

little while, and I am there!

Something to ponder:
“Dear friend, make God your Confidant. Carry to Him all your needs, disclose to Him all your sorrows, confide to Him all your secrets, confess to Him all your sins. He will do all, soothe all, supply all, and pardon all–for who is a God like Him? He cares for you, His loving heart is towards you, His unslumbering eye is upon you! Oh, how condescendingly kind and gentle is Jesus to poor sinners who feel their need of Him, and are conscious that they can do nothing without Him! You will always meet with a kind welcome from Jesus, come when you may and how you will.” Mary Winslow
